Mobilizing for Votes and Vaccines in Cleveland

In advance of local, state and national elections in the fall of 2022, Asian Services in Action (ASIA) partnered with OCA Greater Cleveland to combine voter registration with a vaccination drive in Cleveland, Ohio’s AsiaTown . The event – Verify Your Vote & Get Vaccinated – was held on National Voter Registration Day in September 2022. Community members could come to ASIA’s International Community Health Center to verify their voter registrations, and get their flu and COVID-19 shots. AsiaTown residents speak primarily Chinese dialects like Mandarin, Cantonese and Taishanese, so ASIA’s bilingual staff was on hand to help participants fill out paperwork and navigate the vaccination process. ASIA also partnered with the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority to bring the city’s brightly colored Community Immunity bus to the location to attract passers-by.
